We first came across ukelele songstress Sophie Madeleine with her beautiful Take Your Love With Me. We promptly bought ourselves a ukelele and learnt the chords. You know the score.
We double dare you not to press play on the above video and not instantly fall in love with Sophie’s perfectly toned voice. How has she not had more exposure? One would think that with the success of people like Dan Croll, Mumfords and Dan Howard, artists like Sophie would have had more of a look in?
Here’s ‘Run With Us’ from her side project Runaway Orchestra, which appears to have finally got a release in April through Mr Bongo here. We haven’t heard it yet, but if it has Sophie’s trademark mix of soaring melodies over masterfully simplistic chords, then it’s sure to be a winner.
For fans of: Jason Mraz, Cliff Edwards, Isreal Kamkawiwo’ole, Gotye, Dan Croll.
Not going to lie, I’ve been following the super cool Instagram life of Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) for a while now. Not only was this due to his many hangs with Solange, Mickey Mouse and overall swag rating of like, A MILLION, but also because during the visual stalking of said profile I noticed he was having several bro-outs with the Sugababes.
Having been a fan of the newly named ‘Mutya Keisha Siobhan’ since the ‘Overload’ days, I was eager (along with the rest of the world) to see what this comeback would bring. Would Heidi be sourly missed? Would Mutya still have the lip piercing? Would Siobhan EVER speak?
All my worries were silenced when a MKS re-work of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Swimming Pools’ surfaced a couple of weeks back, and the three part sugary harmony was still there in all it’s glory. This second installment from the new SB line up is a Blood Orange remix of Phoenix’s ‘Entertainment’ where the girls get all sassy on the vocals. Check it out, and love it.
